CJS 20

I was so far behind that I decided to jump in with the most current JumpStart at the time. 

Gwen Lafleur was the Jumper for this video. Picasso was the inspiration artist. Gwen did a collage of fish. I like how she interpreted Picasso. I'm not into fish like she is, but I did have an idea. First I put down a background of bold colors. So far, so good. Then  I made a profile picture of my husband,  and cut it out of various colored, patterned papers, one large size and three smaller size. The larger one is in the back and the three small ones all got cut up. I like it but it still doesn't seem finished to me. I'm not sure what it needs. The background is too busy or dark and I need something to focus on. Perhaps if I had done the large profile in black instead of patterened paper...

Despite it still feeling unfinished, I like it. It doesn't look like a Picasso, but I think the Picasso influence shows.


Today is the last day of Creative JumpStart 2016, but I will continue to work on it (and post) until I have done something for each day of January (minus the research days).


I don't know if Nathalie makes the videos available without the "live" online workshop. If not, checking out Creative JumpStart 2016 here will help you decide if you want to try 2017.  (I'm assuming there'll be a CJS 2017.)
